Day 37 (cycle day 9) – Stimming Starts!

October 29, 2006 at 8:26 pm 2 comments

I must admit I was a little nervous before my first shot. Lupron I’m used to – its become a standard part of my day. But what was this new thing gonna feel like?

Luckily DH took care of everything. He watched the video again and assured me he’s got it down and I don’t have a thing to worry about. All I need to do it ice my spot of choice and not even look.

I trusted him to do it right and didnt even glance down. The needle went in very quickly, and I heard that clicking sound from the Follistim pen as he administered the medication. Then it was over.

I had to ice another side for my usual Lupron.

After two shots I must admit it felt a bit like much. Not that the shots were painful in the least – just that I felt pretty drugged up. My tummy had that brief sensation of feeling numbed up, like at the dentists.

But there it was – my first stim shot!! Hopefully one of ten or less and then I will have all my eggies ready.

Its a little mind boggling to me what I have to go through, just to make maybe 10 eggs in this one month. While DH does not have to do a thing and can produce 100 million sperm every day! How unfair.

But who cares right now. I’m stimming!!
